Seeking recommendations for service, Blaine-Bellingham area
The Admiral and I just returned from a wonderful week in the islands, capped off by the big hullabaloo party at Squalicum Harbor in B'ham for the 4th before returning to Blaine this afternoon. We had a great time.
My sensitive ears, however, are picking up new sounds...intermittent thump-like vibrations and a whining that I didn't hear before. The old Kingfisher is a retired fishing boat with a mile-long prop shaft hidden in her keel (the Lehman 120 lives under the pilot house). While I do almost all maintenance myself, I want expert consultation on her drive system, from the transmission to the prop.
I'd like your suggestions for local professional expertise. I liked the guys at Walsh (formerly Westman) in Blaine, but they haven't really done any work on Kingfisher. They're right here, of course....
I'm a working stiff so cost has to be, unfortunately, a consideration...but expertise trumps all. I have to be able to trust this old girl and I don't want to damage her with my inexperience.
Whatcha got? Thanks in advance!
Anson & Donna
